At first I thought that 649 Pokémon seemed like a lot, but it's easy to get all Unova Pokémon throughout the game, and the other 493 from the older games are pretty easy to get from the PokéTransfer, since you can get a lot at one time. There's usually more ways to get the Pokémon to the most recent games, it just takes time.

About 25 minutes ago My shiny ekans shone. Prob 500 resets thats 2500 ekans. Hes a careful nature and ivs arnt so bad. I named him arbongnik. If anyone can guess why. Once again pics will come when i can. On to eevee now.

Good grief, that's a lot of resets. Kudos to you, you have more dedication than I ever had.

I got my Gible, not really happy about the nature (oh well.) Still need to get that Japanese Ditto so I can get MMing. =/

2500 ekans? Wow how long did that take you?

Well 500 resets isnt that long. Took me a day and a half of non-dedicated resetting. And dont forget 2500 ekans is because you reset 5 at a time. So it wasnt a hassle. And for bbcode markup i had to delete 2 shines from my sig so i deleted my lost shiny claydol and my event raichu from there because they dont really count. Now i have to do eevee wich is annoying because bill loves t chat it up before he gives you eevee.

EDIT: i am just loving arboks shiny sprite. Golden blue is awsome

Good morning guys. :) Congrats to everyone and their new shinies! I'm envious, Gligari. I want a shiny Arbok so bad. xD

Putting the Totodile hunt on hold and going to start working on Houndour for a while. I haven't been doing too much shiny hunting in the past few days... been too busy. :p Plus I've been getting some breeding requests on the forums... and that interferes with MMing.

But Amadeus is a level away from becoming a shiny Charizard... can't wait!

Also, wanted to ask opinions: do you MMers find it faster to gather five eggs, hatch them, put them in the box, then go collect more from the day care man? Or do you stockpile eggs and then just hatch them? I have yet to find a desireable method, tbh.

Er...I am not really sure I totally understand the resetting thing. 5 at a time?

I got a Shiny Espeon off the GTS before. It was caught in Sinnoh at LV.100. So, I re-traded it for a Charizard :3

Good morning everyone. Good luck to all the shiny hunts today.

too many pokemon.. too many threats... ruins metagame.

as a casual pokemon player and catcher, etc.. im sure its not a big deal to them.


but to me.. i think the designs are still quality, the ideas and types are great, the pokemon themselves are solid. but i do feel that there are just.. too many.. and even more [which will probably happen] will be chaos

Unfortunately I haven't got a shiny Cobalion yet. But I'm thinking about quitting because I have a Spanish Black version so I might as well do my SR hunt there, but I don't know yet. I kinda want a shiny Cobalion now so that I can get a shiny Virizion, because it looks different.

So, if you don't get a shiny Cobalion, you can't get a shiny Terrakon or Virizion? I didn't know that. I thought they were all independent.

Learn something new every day.

Oh I get it, so you save BEFORE you buy the ekans or fight a legendary then catch as many as you can, if they aren't shiny, you reset?

Exactly. That is how you SR for a shiny pokemon. You can also save before obtaining an egg if you prefer.

You can't see Terrakion or Virizion until you've battled that hench beast that is Cobalion, so you, in theory, cannot get the others as shinies until you get a shiny Cobalion

Off topic: really digging the sig, the old school Haxorous evolution line thingy is awesome.


On topic: who has encountered. A legendary shiny without soft resting?

I encountered shiny suicune in crystal. I remember thinking it was a glitch and reseting.
